You are not in Boston if you haven’t tried New England Clam Chowder. What better way to get a taste of authenticity none other than Boston’s Award Winning Clam Chowder Boston Chowda Co, owned by family-run Kitchens by the Bay group, the same group operating La Pastaria and The DogHouse.
As the two time winners of Boston’s HarborFest ChowderFest, Boston Chowda should give you a fill of their thick creamy New England Clam Chowder made even more delicious in Boston’s schizophrenic chilly weather. Boston Chowda has been featured in Food Network Channel, Unwrapped, Food Finds, and E! Channel.
Boston Chowda has three locations, but the best place to enjoy it is at Faneuil Hall Marketplace in North End, where the crowd is upbeat, the location is near the Waterfront and Long Wharf. So yes, you can really taste the freshness of their seafoods and smell the oceanic environment.
Boston Chowda’s NEW ENGLAND CLAM CHOWDER
There are no fancy bowls and plating for the New England Clam Chowder. These are served in bread bowl. Made with local surf clams and hand cut potatoes, the rich cream should fill you up immediately. This is easily the most popular dish in Faneuil Hall.
Boston Chowda’s Maine LOBSTER ROLLS
The New England Clam Chowder isn’t complete without its best friend, the Maine Lobster Roll. Unlike Boston Maine Fish & Co which is also in Faneuil Hall, you will have to order the New England Clam Chowder in a bread bowl separately. They have Clam Chowda and Lobster Roll combo but the chowder is served only in a cup.
The traditional Lobster Roll is a sandwich that is stuffed with lobster meat soaked in butter and encased in a hotdog bun.
On the side, Boston Chowda serves Oyster Crackers which were delicious, by the way.
OH MY GOD. The moment I had a bite on my lobster roll, I knew this was the best thing I ever ate, more than ramen, more than sushi. The meat was so tender, succulent, rich and flavorful. It was the freshest seafood ever.
Versus TIA’s along Waterfront, Boston Chowda should offer you a quick bite of meaty lobster rolls at a fraction of your price and isn’t a tourist trap unlike TIA’s. (TIA’s serve overpriced drinks and cocktails, by the way. So you’ve been warned.)
I would go back to Boston Chowda in a heartbeat. Lobster Roll is now my new favorite food.
